Sheikh Mansour Leghaei deportation contravention of UN’s wishes

Sydney, May 17 2010: Immigration Minister Senator Chris Evans’ decision today to deport Sheikh Mansour Leghaei is in direct contravention of the UN’s wishes, sent in a formal request to the Australian Government last month.
The United Nations Human Rights Committee in Geneva issued a request on April 21 asking the Australian Government not to deport Dr Leghaei and his accompanying dependants while it is considering his case. Dr Leghaei’s legal team sent a petition to the UN Committee last month claiming the Government’s treatment of his case contravened his human rights under the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR), to which Australia is a party. Under the First Optional Protocol to the ICCPR, individuals in Australia may lodge complaints with the UN Committee if all domestic remedies have been exhausted. Under Rule 92 of the UN Committee’s Rules of Procedure, a complainant may request urgent “interim measures” to prevent deportation where “irreparable harm” would occur if the deportation proceeded. Such measures remain in place until the complaint is finally determined, which usually takes about one year.
While interim measures are framed in terms of a ‘request’, the UN Human Rights Committee has unequivocally stated that the failure to respect an interim measures request is a breach of the States obligations under the international treaty law:
“Failure to implement such interim or provisional measures is incompatible with the obligation to respect in good faith the procedure of individual communication established under the Optional Protocol. (UN Human Rights Committee, General Comment NO.33, CCPR/GC/33,5November 2008, para. 19.)”
A leading international legal authority on the UN Communications procedures, Professor Anne Bayefsky, reports that approximately 90% of interim measures are complied with.
“Dr Leghaei was denied his human right to a procedurally fair hearing in the issue of an adverse security assessment by ASIO and in the decision to deport him which relied upon that assessment,” said Associate Professor Dr. Ben Saul, Co-Director of Sydney University’s Sydney Centre for International Law and one of the barristers who prepared the petition.
“Like numerous others who have been subject to adverse security assessments by ASIO, Dr Leghaei has never been told the basis of the allegations against him.
“Our strong case will have ramifications for others in Dr Leghaei’s situation both in Australia and internationally, where a person is unable to see or challenge any of the evidence against them.”
Dr Leghaei and his family, who have lived peacefully in Australia for 16 years, have never been granted permanent residency due to adverse security assessments issued against the Sheikh by ASIO several years ago.
In March Dr Leghaei appealed to the Minister to exercise his ministerial powers and allow him to remain in the country. Today, Senator Evans granted visas to Dr Leghaei’s wife and son, but denied a visa to the Sheikh. He has been given six weeks to leave the country.
Australia is being accused of violating Articles 2, 13, 14, 23, 24 and 26 of the ICCPR .
His petition details that:
· Dr Leghaei has been denied a fair hearing in ASIO’s issue of an adverse security assessment, in the Department of Immigration’s decision to rely upon that assessment to refuse him a visa, and in all proceedings before the Migration Review Tribunal and Federal Court of Australia;
· He has been discriminated against because was denied procedural fairness because he was not an Australian citizen or permanent resident;
· The deportation cannot be justified because, in the absence of proof he is a genuine threat to national security, it would split his family and deprive his 14 year old daughter, an Australian citizen, of both her parents.
